“Joyful Fridays” ~Every Knee will Bow~ Pass on a cup of JOY!

Standard

Don’t worry about non-believers!  Pray for them!  No matter how they deny Jesus, no matter how they refuse to believe now, they will acknowledge He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords!The Joy is: Romans 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me,
and every tongue shall confess to God.

“Joyful Fridays” ~He Hears You ~ Pass on a cup of JOY!

Standard

Cup of Joy

Keep pressing! Keep moving! Keep praying! His ear is wide open and He hears every request.  He is not a God that overlooks your prayers!  When He’s not answering, you can count on the fact that He’s working!

The Joy is: When we just rest and take delight in the LORD, he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4 

Counting it All Joy,

We learned on yesterday in a mini series of “Count it All Joy” that joy is the second fruit of the spirit Galations 5:23. Joy is having contentment hope, and confidence Philippians 4:11. Joy is a gift from God! John 14:15-18. Joy is found in the Word of God 1 John 1:3-4. Our strength is found in His Joy! Nehemiah 8:10.

We must not get joy confused with happiness. Joy does not depend on anything happening! Joy will not rest in an ungrateful heart! If we find ourselves lacking joy, then we must ask if we’re being ungrateful? As you go about your day today, delete the list of “have nots” and make a list of what you do have! As you contemplate and medidate on what is going on well in your life, the small things God has blessed you with, and the hand of God over your life, You will find joy! When you see Him, you will receive JOY!

“Joyful Fridays” ~Dump it All ~ Pass on a cup of JOY!

Standard

Instead of dumping on others or being dumped on, try dumping on the Lord!  He desires for you to dumb it all on him!

The Joy is:

1 Peter 5:6-7 (KJV) Humble  yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due  time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

“Joyful Fridays” ~Always Comforting ~ Pass on a cup of JOY!

Standard

Some will remember their mother’s comfort and wish for her touch!  Rest in the Lord’s comfort!The Joy is:

 Isaiah 66:13: “As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you …”  God has not forgotten and comforts those that are motherless!

As we approach Mother’s Day, I’m becoming more and more grateful for being a mother. I would not have missed the opportunity to laugh at the cutest things, watch the eyes of my little one as he finds comfort in his my arms, and to hear the silence at the table because everyone is enjoying mommy’s meal. These are just the few joys of being a mother. I thank God that he gifted me with the journey of motherhood. Although, it’s a little rough at times balancing all the hats. He still gives me enough energy to achieve, accomplish, and fulfill my purpose. I seek to be that Proverbs 31 Women. In my own strength it’s quite impossible; but with Christ all things are possible.

Today, as you complete your motherly task, stop to medidate on the joys of being a mother. One of my son’s quotes: “You’re the best, best, best mom ever.” Proverbs 31:28 Her children arise and call her blessed
